California Fig and Cranberry Orange Muffins

I have some figs which I purchased at Costco and haven't been able to use, so I slipped them into my freezer.

In the spirit of using up the food in my freezer, I went out to to look for some recipes.

I am going to try to use up the figs -- perhaps this will be one of my first recipes at giving that a try.  You can see the picture has a morning brunch with a few of these on a red tablecloth.  Looks good.  Now, will they taste good?

California Fig and Cranberry Orange Muffins

Makes 24 muffins.


2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour 
3/4  cup granulated sugar 
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1-1/3 cups milk 
2/3 cup vegetable oil 
2 eggs, lightly beaten 
2 tablespoons grated orange zest 
3/4 cup fresh, frozen or dried cranberries  


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.  Line muffin pan with baking cups. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; make well in center.  In separate bowl, combine milk, oil, eggs and orange zest; add to flour mixture all at once.  Stir just until combined.  Gently fold in figs and cranberries. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with just a few crumbs attached.  Cool in pan 5 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool on cooling grid.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
